:iconspikeomgplz: :iconsaysplz: Awwwkkwaard....

This isn't supposed to be a Trollestia or Trolluna comic. It's a observation I made and decided to make a comic out of.
I got inspired to do this after watching "Return to Harmony, pt1" where this converstaion takes place:

:icontwilightnoesplz: :iconsaysplz: "That's it, I bet Discord hid the Elements in the Palace Labyrinth!"

:iconcelestiaunamusedplz: :iconsaysplz: "Good luck my little ponies"

I had wondered why Celestia didn't go to the labyrinth with the mane six, and what was she doing while the mane six were there, I thought about it and jokingly thought she might have left to go pack her bags. Fast forward a few months and here this comic is!
(sarcasm ->)Let me grab my tin foil hat first... :iconsa-tinfoil:The more I think about it though, this is a possiblity, I mean think about it.

Nightmare Moon returns: I've heard people say that NMM's power somehow "magically" made Celestia disappear, but think about it. Celestia knew that NMM would return that night, so she probably got out of town and left...

Discord returns: Where's Luna, and why didn't Celestia continue helping the mane six? I'll tell you why, they had already tangoed with Discord before, they knew what was coming and high-tailed it out of there, man!

The Changelings attack: Luna is missing again, and the only reason Celestia was there was because she didn't know what was going on in the first place. She couldn't just leave when everyone in Canterlot (...MINUS LUNA...) was there, her secret would be blown.

Tools used: Pencil, Paper, MS paint, GIMP

P.S. I don't think Celestia is a troll, this was all for comedic purposes.

As usual, the artist has captured a sense of humour and incorporated it well within the piece. Facial expressions are extremely well done and reflect what's happening in the situation. The strip's ludicrous nature, which is reminiscent of many a good TV or Movie cliche not before seen in this medium, enhanced the comedy when one familiar with MLP considers how retreat and "not facing your problems" is epitomous to the exact opposite of how the characters would react. I felt the strongest part of this strip was the deadpan punchline and the idea that Celestia would even bother trying to BS her way out of a situation so awkward. At the same time, what was she packing? Her regalia? All four of her shoes were on...
What do you think?

This is really funny. I like the way you drew their faces when they were caught in leaving. This is really good. Very original. (sorry for repeating things) I like everything about this, except when you zoom it in, it gets a little blurry. You can't help that, but I thought you should know. The back ground is fantastic. The way you made Princess Celestia's horn glow is really cool, and I havent a clue how you did that. Again, a very original idea, very funny, and very cute. I am seriously looking forward to more comics from you in the future.

Well, she kinda would have to, she is the princess, so it's for her own safety or something...
WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your dreams.
So every time villain attacks she gets a vacation?

Yeah, she's so 'magical wise and powerful' yet she rarely does much to help....

Like Dumbledore!

The official comics expand on this, all Celestia does is paperwork and go to events. Luna goes out fighting monsters every night.

Wait wait wait -- er, pardon my butting in on a random comment -- there's an official comic? And Luna fights monsters every night?? WHERE MIGHT I FIND THIS EXERCISE IN EPIC? o:
Yup, loads of comics, they are very good:…

The one I am referring to is the stand-alone Luna edition of the micro-series:…
